Mengding Huang Ya

Tea has been produced on the slopes of Mengshan for centuries, and sometime in the murky past, the development of the yellowing process made this tea from the mountain's peak a special delicacy. These pure and lightly fuzzed buds are deliciously mild and creamy, with a hint of bitter melon just tripping across the tongue, and the barest whiff of woodsmoke and vanilla in the aftertaste. A yellow tea for white tea lovers, and all who appreciate the refined.
